Being More Intentional With Your Wellness Goals

I think a lot of us have goals of living a healthier lifestyle or feeling our best, yet we don’t make changes. I am not throwing shade, I have been there too. There can be a lot of reasons for this, but I think the most common reason would be because we are not being intentional with our wellness goals. Prioritizing our wellness goals often means making some lifestyle and habit changes and often means breaking out of our normal routines. All of which is hard and requires us to make the intentional decision.


Being intentional means you are consciously spending your time, energy and money on what is important to you. It means your actions are aligned with your goals for your life. Focusing on what matters most to you is not only more fulfilling, but can help you advance your goals and bring you closer to your dream life.


If you are ready to break out of the cycle of wanting to live a healthier life and actually start living a healthier life, it is time to make the conscious decision to change and follow through.


Here are some ways you can be more intention with our wellness journey:


Get clear on what you want to achieve when it comes to your wellness. This means being specific about the outcome you are looking for and focusing on how your life will be different when you have achieved them.


Get clear on the goals you need to focus on to achieve the outcomes you want. This means setting realistic habit changes that are suited to your unique goals, challenges and supports.


Track your new healthy habits. Keep track of the habits that you are trying to change with clear daily, weekly and monthly measures to track your progress.


Be more aware of how you are spending your time, energy or money. We often say we often use time, energy and money as an excuse as to why we can't prioritize our wellness goals, like making healthy foods, working out or, yet we will spend hours scrolling on our phone or have no problem spending tons on dining out.


Find an accountability buddy. Find someone who has similar goals, has had a similar path, or someone like a health or wellness coach, who you can check in with regularly about your progress, your successes and your challenges to keep you focused and moving forward.
